Reasons #456-457 Why I am the Photographer in the Family

Last week, I had to ask my husband to take a few pictures of me while I installed our new Waterpik shower head. About 3 minutes into the install, I remembered why he is not the photographer in the family.

Reason #456: He doesn’t know how to toggle the focal points. And that is purely my fault. I apparently can’t explain it right!

Reason #457: He takes pictures of my ass.

But even a squirrel finds a nut sometimes.

Total shameless plug alert. I swear I can teach people how to use their camera {just not my husband}. If you are in the Philadelphia area and you are like my husband and don’t know how to toggle focal points, I am hosting a {Learning to Click} Beginner dSLR workshop on June 24th. Seats are limited so grab yours today!

  1. bwhahaha yeah Gene does the same thing.. the taking pics of my butt that is.. still think it is cute though

  2. You need to do an online type class! Philly is just to far for me!

    My husband can’t use the camera either…. and takes pictures of my butt. He thinks it’s funny for some reason.

    1. I do have online one-on-one classes! Info can be found here:

  3. It really must be a gender thing. I’m no photographer, but I can at least manage to get everybody’s face in a shot or remember to not put my finger in front of the lens. The husband? Not so much 🙂

  4. My Hubby takes great photos, although he does get in those shots of my butt & stuff you’d rather they not!
    I was so excited to click on the link to your workshop and realized, I can’t go. I babysit every weekend now. So bummed. I have this kick ass camera that I have no clue what to do with.

    1. Boo on not being able to come! BUT I do have online one-on-one classes too.

  5. My hubby is not a great photographer either. And I would totally find a butt shot on there too…cause men are just tall little boys!

  6. Oh I love it! My hubby is clueless when it comes to taking pictures – though once in a while he’ll capture a gem!

  7. I can totally relate to this. I hand my camera over to the hubby and he just automatically switches it to auto focus and turns on the flash if he is inside. I’ve tried to teach him the toggle button to focus but it’s a lost cause. I think it makes him sweat a bit!
